Winnipeg Jets Practice Report

A second straight day of practice before taking off for Edmonton.

The Jets hit the ice for a rare second straight day of practice before they take off for Edmonton and one day ahead of a Trade Deadline that feels both monumental and anticlimactic. The questions marks surround the status of Pierre-Luc Dubois and Mason Appleton, both of whom did not participate in yesterday’s skate.

Skate news:

No Pierre-Luc Dubois or Mason Appleton today at practice.

Recall news:

The team announced that they have recalled Axel Jonsson-Fjallby on an emergency basis and put Mason Appleton on IR.
